Two persons were killed after a Tesla with a semi-automatic driving system crashed into a tree in Texas on Saturday night.
According to reports, it is believed that the vehicle was operating without anyone in the driver’s seat. However, it was not clear if the semi-automatic system was in use.
A Harris County official said there was no one in the driver’s seat. However, there was a person in the front passenger seat and another in the rear passenger seat.
Local television station KHOU-TV said the 2019 Tesla Model S was travelling at a high speed when it failed to negotiate a curve and went off the roadway, crashing to a tree and bursting into flames.
The identity of the victims had not been released by Sunday afternoon. One of the victims was aged 69, while the other was aged 59.
